Arctic Solar Ventures was founded in Alaska with a purpose to do good in the Alaskan community and environment. The company is a certified B Corp, meaning it addresses social issues (in this case, helping the environment) while providing a product. Arctic Solar Ventures’ two co-founders also founded the Alaska Solar Energy Industry Association (AKSEIA). The company specializes in solar design, construction, and engineering for both home and businesses.
A Certified B Corp is a business that meets strict requirements and undergoes rigorous review to prove that it addresses a social challenge or social impact initiative. B Corps are also evaluated on their environmental impact and how company employees are treated. B Corps are one of the best ways to make an actual difference in the world and are a great place to invest.
Arctic Solar Ventures has received the following noteworthy awards:
Arctic Solar Ventures offers a 30-year warranty — five years longer than the typical standard of excellence in the industry.
Arctic Solar Ventures offers a loan or cash as its payment options. The loan information is fully transparent, with 10–20 year terms (typical in the industry) and no prepayment penalty fees. Other companies in the industry may also offer a lease option; however, leases are usually the lesser form of financing as the customer often ends up paying much more for their solar system over time.
Arctic Solar Ventures provides customers an excellent blog with useful resources and other links to information regarding solar panels, the impact of going solar, and how solar affects a home’s infrastructure.
Arctic Solar Ventures pays customers who refer others to the company. Arctic Solar Ventures will pay customers $200 for each successful referral. This isn’t the highest referral amount offered in the industry, but it is a benefit for those who refer others to Arctic Solar Ventures.
Arctic Solar Ventures is exceptionally rated from dozens of customer reviews across Alaska.
Arctic Solar Ventures is a newer company, only in businesses for six years. This can be concerning as the company’s warranty is nearly six times the time it's been in business. However, Arctic Solar Ventures has proven it is dedicated to creating an impact, and was recognized as one of the top 500 fastest growing companies, which points to the likely continued success of the company in future years.
